State agent, I worked for 15 years in decentralized state services, then 20 years in central administration. I devote part of my energy to creating, leading and implementing administrative simplification solutions for the benefit of the public. With a legal background, but an intrapreneur and IT self-taught, in 1998 I created the first platform for dematerializing online grant applications operational from 2002 to 2014. I subsequently contributed to putting in place measures to support public transformation according to LEAN approaches. I co-led the "tell us one" program which aims to reduce requests for information relating to companies during administrative procedures. Piloting in agile mode, co-construction with all partners, I finally founded and piloted "demarches-simplifiees.fr", a public platform operated by the State which aims to democratize access for administrations to digitization of procedures, which in 5 years has become the first generic public platform for the dematerialization of administrative procedures.
